Safandula.8723 Posted April 26, 2019 Share Posted April 26, 2019 So im not gonna focus on, why is 600 range steal bad, but why is bad at thatmoment.I completly agree thats elite specs should have traid off. U realised it and started to work on that, good.U wanted to change daredevil into brawler, more duelling spec, which i like, as i like to vault over ppl. U change daredevil traitline pretty well imo, but there is 1 big failure. The unblockable part. Unblockable steal is useless by itself, and it benefits ony from few traits.Sleight of hand - https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Sleight_of_HandBewildering ambush - https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Bewildering_AmbushBountifull theft - https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Bountiful_TheftMug - https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/MugSo lets imagine we got no trickery, but we have mug on DA. we can Land 1500 dmg attack on everyone who is blocking. We deal 1500 dmg, heal some life and its all, player is still blocking, we dont get anything else, we cant do anything more.Now lets talk about trickery traitline. We want to utilize Sleight of hand to daze target. Here we need unblockable part, but we already took trickery so wehave bountifull theft which steal aegis. We dont rly gain much form unblockable Swipe. It doesnt rly synergise with a Way thats thief is made right now.So if we want to have use of swipe, we need trickery anyway, which im fact is mandatory in every possible thief build. Thanks to all the boons that we can get, and to do Our job in fighting other classes. Solutions that should be made at this point:Give swipe unblockable for 1-2 seconds after succesfull swipe land. Make prepardness a baseline. 12 initiative is absolute garbage, and in the time of powercreep we need it, to be able to think about droping trickery for anything else.Change stolen skills. If u want to bring daredevils into melee, we need more possibilities to do so. Giving another tools to fight in melee, would be good traid off, instead of just steal with reduced range Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
